Default Chinese Zodiac Animal - What are you?

Just for fun... I found this image on a notebook of an old friend of mine... its by some famous designer but I forgot his name... I'm a Sheep by the way.... To bad the text is degraded... each of the drawings also resembles the Chinese written words for those animals. Drawing and Writing all in one.

I am a dragon in all sence of the word
Year of the Dragon - 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, 2012, 2024, 2036, 2048
The dragon enjoys a very high reputation in Chinese culture. It is the token of authority, dignity, honor, success, luck, and capacity. In ancient China, a dragon was thought to speed across the sky with divine power. Emperors entitled themselves exclusively as 'dragon'; their thrones were called 'dragon thrones', their clothes 'dragon gowns'.
People under the sign of the dragon are lively, energetic and fortunate. They often can be leaders and try to go for perfection. When they meet with difficulties, they are not discouraged. But they are a little arrogant, and impatient, and women are over- confident. If they overcome these defects, they can have a brighter future.
Best match: rat, monkey, rooster; avoid: dog, ox, dragon, rabbit

The chinese zodiac is more than just a 12 year cycle....The cycles are part of a bigger cycle of the 5 elements. There is an inner animal... the month of birth... on top of that a secret animal... the hour of birth. The secret animal is your truest form.

I am an Earth Sheep on the outside, A metal dog on the inside... I don't know the hour I was born so I don't know my true form! I'll find out when I go to my parents and look up my birth certificate... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chinese_astrology
